Face the business challenge with careful integration and decoupling of systems.
Know your domain.
Produce a domain-map and distill requirements to suite.
Via events or APIs.
Install listeners in legacy software. Create service facades to abstract complexity.
Integrate vs. re-write.
Consider an event-bus over language re-writes.
Is the DevOps tooling in place for agile?
Little and often.
Creating large releases? Reduce risk through regular deployments of backwards-compatible, non-breaking changes.
Redundancy-first; not vendor.
Avoid vendor lock-in. Implement behaviour in a cloud-agnostic way.
Create modular and scalable software that meets your needs.
Patterns - avoid re-inventing the wheel.
There are solved problems. Build modular, adaptable software using enterprise design-patterns.
DRY principles; avoid re-writing common behaviours.
Use your time, instead, to build new products.
Decouple modules and make it easy to substitute behaviours without touching code.
Model entities and behaviour into code that's representative, easy to follow, and enjoyable to maintain.
Frameworks - but don't define.
Produce solutions quickly but don't ignore alternatives that could be more suitable.
Don't get trapped in the stack.
Development should be business-focused, not stack-focused.
